First Annual Poker Run @ Bogies Adventures! -- October 15th!
« on: September 11, 2017, 01:34:16 PM »
Alright guys, here the details!

First annual Fall Poker Run @ Bogies Adventures!!


WHAT IS A POKER RUN?
- A poker run is NOT a race, and speed or skill level has nothing to do with you chances of winning. It is an organized trail ride, through a closed course, with everyone riding the same direction. With every lap you complete, you'll receive a playing card. You can do as many laps as you'd like, but you can only earn a maximum of five cards. At the end of the poker run [1PMish], we'll compare hands and determine the winners!

Seems like a short loop. Does it stay interesting going 'round and 'round? Like there's enough variation and so forth?

Oh yeah, trust me, you'll enjoy the loop a lot. I'm going to take the 990 down in a week or two and get some video of the course. It's laid out to be big bike friendly- a great opportunity to work on those skills :)

That's correct- we had to adjust it a week earlier due to a conflict with the Forward Motion HS Series having a race on the 22nd. I'm gonna update the thread and calendar entry today to reflect it.

Derek did you manage to get any video?
Rain forecast all week but long range for next week looks dry so I would imagine would be good conditions.

This looks like it'll be a hoot!! However, I'll be headed to Arkansas for a week. We will be taking the KTM and the DRZ with us this year so we should have a few days of good dual sport riding. We'll be in the Mena area.
Ya all have fun!!
